There is a certain irony in the fact that, during the course of recent history, it has been the extreme right-wing of some western governments, including those of the US, the UK and Australia, that have accused those not supporting their wars against the Islamic peoples of the world as being ‘appeasers’.
The irony is in the fact that, just prior to the start of the Second World War, the appeasers were those that were quite happy to allow Hitler to invade and occupy the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia whereas in the lead up to the Coalition of the Willing’s invasion of the Iraq the people that are now somehow being cast as the appeasers are those that implored the COW not to invade Iraq.
It seems that the only people doing the appeasing based on the logic of the western right-wing’s analogy of appeasers being those that appeased Hitler prior to occupying a sovereign nation, are those that support the COW that ended up invading Iraq. All, in the end, were appeasing Israel. The real appeasers therefore, are Bush, Blair and Downer and all the others that supported the invasion, occupation and pillaging of Iraq.
Smoke and mirrors. And some people actually fall for this garbage.
 In Australia, Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has referred to the Australian Labor Party (ALP) as appeasers. In the US Rumsfeld famously referred to those that opposed Bush’s war against Iraq as ‘appeasers’, and in the UK British right-wing commentators like John Keegan were exhorting Blair to ‘ignore the appeasers’.
